About Braeside Country Cottage

Braeside Country Cottage is located near Tarkastad in the Eastern Cape. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of this private guest farm which is only a three hour drive from both Port Elizabeth and East London.

The cottage is situated on the banks of the Tarkastad River and is surrounded by Lucerne lands. The working sheep and cattle farm is at the foot of the Winterberg Mountain range; making it ideal for hikers, walkers, cyclists and fishermen. However, if hunting is more your game, we have guided safaris for more than 20 years in the Eastern Cape and beyond and are confident that we have the infrastructure and experience to make your stay a memorable one!

Self Catering Accommodation

Braeside Country Cottage has four bedrooms. All rooms are equipped with heaters, electric blankets and hot water bottles.

The main bedroom is furnished with a Queen size bed, ensuite bathroom, private lounge and private entrance.

Room 2 also has a private entrance but is furnished with a double bed and has an en-suite bathroom.

Rooms 3 and 4 share a bathroom.


Braeside Country Cottage has a fully equipped open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge with DStv. Relax around a cosy log fire or enjoy a braai (barbeque) in our large braai area under the amazingly clear, starry skies of the majestic Winterberg. The cottage is fully serviced daily to enable you to take a complete break.


Enjoy an unforgettable experience, whether hunting, hiking, cycling, fishing or just relaxing in the pristine beauty of the rugged mountains or rolling plains of the Winterberg.

Trout Fishing:
Braeside Country Cottage has access to 6 dams offering excellent fly fishing. Thrift Dam (25km), Ventnor, Delton and Theadan (15km), Barry Dam (15km) and Nettlegrove Dam (6km).
